Long before adjectives like ‘intense,’ ‘vivid’ or ‘neon’ these legendary California gems had the market cornered on extremely saturated hues. Even today, there is little that compares to the bubblegum pink of a good San Diego Co. Tourmaline. Here is a beautiful example - the color and cutting simply couldn’t be better and the stone has no overly distracting inclusions. Typical for the material, there are a few veils, but given the intensity of the color and attractive shape they are minimal. Great, usable size as well.
